What are the signs you are a clingy girlfriend?

It’s normal to be clingy when you’re in a relationship.

After all, you must be very close to him to know him more.

But you must be very careful not to be seen as a clingy girlfriend.

Clinginess is a sign that you are desperate for attention.

The problem with being clingy is that it makes you appear needy, which is not attractive.

You want to spend every waking moment with your partner, and you get upset when they don’t want to do the same thing.

You also expect your partner to be available at all times and resent it when they go out with friends or family without inviting you along.

This is a classic sign that you need more love and attention from someone else than you can give yourself.

If you’re in a relationship, make sure you’re not displaying these signs of a clingy girlfriend.


    1. You want to be with your boyfriend 24/7.


You are a clingy girlfriend if you have a hard time being apart from him for even a few hours.

You need to constantly be around him and be in contact with him as much as possible.

You are constantly asking him where he is and what he’s doing.

He feels smothered by your constant attention, which makes him feel trapped in the relationship.

This is bad because it might scare away the guy if he realizes how much of a stalker you are.


 2. You call or text him very frequently.


True, there are a lot of reasons why you might call or text your man frequently like when you miss him, you have updates on a plan you have made together, or he’s not feeling well.

But if you’re calling or texting him more than he’s texting you, and he seems to be annoyed by it, that might be a sign that you’re too clingy.

You know that it’s not healthy to be in constant contact with your boyfriend, but you can’t help yourself.

When you’re not together, you’re texting him or calling him.

You might even find yourself calling him when he’s out with his friends, just to say goodnight or tell him how much you miss him.

If this sounds like you, it’s time to take a step back and evaluate whether your clinginess is causing harm in your relationship.


3. You get mad when he doesn’t answer your calls or text right away.


It’s natural to want to know what your significant other is up to, but if you find yourself sending him text messages often and expecting an answer immediately, it could mean that you’ve become a clingy girlfriend. 

You might even start fights with him like, “Why didn’t you respond to my call?” or “I don’t understand why you didn’t text me back!”

You might not know it, but you could be ruining your relationship by being too attached.

It’s just not healthy for anyone involved, especially for the person who is in a relationship with a clingy person like yourself.


4. Your friends tell you that you are being too clingy.

Do you have one or more friends who have said something about your clingy behavior?

They may not have been very specific in their description of what they think is wrong with the way you act around your boyfriend, but their words should give you an idea of what they mean by being clingy.


5. He has told you directly that he thinks you are being too clingy.

If your boyfriend has told you directly that he thinks you are being too clingy, then you need to change your ways.

This is the clearest sign of all.

If he has told you that he wants more space or time alone, this means he does not want to be around you constantly.

You might even notice him pulling away from your advances and retreating into his own space.

So if he says things like “I don’t like feeling like I’m being dragged around everywhere” or “It makes me feel like I can’t do anything without checking in first”, then this is an indication that he is not happy with how much attention he receives from you.


6. You refuse to give him space.


If you are in a relationship, it is important to give your partner some space.

This is because they need to be able to have their own time and do their own things.

If the two of you are together all the time, it can create a sense of suffocation and this can lead to problems in the long run.

If he makes plans with his friends and does not invite you, or if he has been out of town for a few days and you feel upset about it, then you may be more attached than is healthy for both of you.

A man needs his alone time in order to feel loved and appreciated by his woman.

Your clinginess will cause him to run away from you and into the arms of someone else who is not so needy.


7. You check his phone without permission.

You are a clingy girlfriend if you check his phone without permission.

You want to control his actions and decisions by monitoring him by checking his phone always.

You need to understand that at the end of the day, your boyfriend is an adult and he will make his own choices in life regardless of what you want him to do or not do.

You cannot control anyone but yourself, so there is no reason why your partner should feel like they are being controlled by you because you always check his phone without permission.


8. You get jealous if your boyfriend spends time with other women.

You don’t like it when other girls talk to him or flirt with him (even if they’re just being friendly).

You don’t like it when your boyfriend spends time with other girls because you are scared they might steal him away from you.

You might be clingy.


9. You want to know everything about his life or day


You want to know where he is, what he’s doing, and who he’s with.

You want the details of his day, even if they are not important to you.

While you may think this is just a friendly gesture, it actually comes across as overbearing and insecure.

And can be really annoying for most people which may lead them to ignore your texts altogether or just not respond at all because it feels like too much work for them over time.


    10. You stalk his Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat.

You have to know everything he’s doing at all times on social media.

You stalk his Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat.

It doesn’t matter that he tells you not to worry about it or that you should trust him — you can’t help it.

It’s like an addiction that drives you crazy until you find out more information about him.

If you do this, you might be a clingy girlfriend.


    11. You’re jealous of his time without you.


It’s normal to be a little insecure about your boyfriend spending time with his friends and family, but if you’re constantly accusing him of cheating or worrying that he doesn’t love you as much as he used to, it’s time to examine your own behavior.

The truth is that if he really wants to leave you, he will, so why worry?

Your boyfriend may even find it endearing at first that you are so concerned about his whereabouts, but after a while, it will start to annoy him.

You wish he would spend more time with you, but then when he does spend time with you, you don’t want him to go anywhere or do anything without you.

You think that he should be spending all of his time with you, and when he spends time with other people or on his own, you get upset.

You feel like he’s cheating on you when he’s not.

You want all of his attention on you at all times, which is not healthy.

If you can’t stand the idea of him spending time with his friends or doing something without you, then it’s probably a sign that you are a little too clingy.

The signs above are just red flags that highlight the fact that you are clingy.

After reading this, if you consider yourself to be a clingy girlfriend, go and make some changes in your life.

Get a life, get busy with work, family, friends, and other hobbies and interests. 

Your life shouldn’t revolve around a man.
